What is meditation? How do I begin a practice? Is there a right and wrong way to learn? If you have questions about meditation—you’re not alone. That’s why we’ve created a 14-Day Meditation Challenge to answer your most pressing meditation questions and help you develop a new habit that could transform your stress levels, your relationship with yourself and others, and ultimately—your life. It’s not too lateclick here to join!

If your thoughts start racing as soon as you sit down to meditate—don’t overthink it—all meditators have "busy minds" during meditation. (Even Light!) Learn why welcoming your thoughts is a positive thing and will actually help you filter through them and calm your mind.
